Crazed Nuclear Ambitions: Western Powers Prepare First Strike

Fifty-six years ago, senior Pentagon officials drafted a 33-page blueprint for initiating - and winning - a nuclear war against the Soviet Union. Even though their own analysis conceded that such a plan could result in the deaths of 3 out of every 4 Americans, the Joint Chiefs strongly recommended that JFK use the ratcheted up tensions over Cuba and Vietnam as cover to carry out a preemptive strike. Fortunately for Americans, Russians and the rest of the world, JFK categorically rejected that advice! The top-secret Pentagon Plan (along with others like their planned false flag, Operation Northwoods) was kept hidden from public view, until finally being declassified over three and a half decades later. So, do not expect to receive any forewarning - you will be just as clueless as 1960's Americans were!

Half a century after the top echelon of the US military brought us to the brink of nuclear catastrophe Russia has replaced the Soviet Union as the West's leading bogeyman (beyond even ISIS or al Qaeda) and Cuba & Vietnam have been supplanted by Syria & North Korea, the hotspot battlefields of today. The common denominator however, appears to be the power-crazed generals leading the US military. Lacking the military background of JFK, has Trump been persuaded by a convincing sales pitch by his neocon generals and/or his presidental briefings that such a preemptive strike is indeed winnable? Then this may be the real reason behind his unfathomable 180° turn, mere weeks into his presidency. If the military madmen have taken control, then whatever crisis is being engineered may occur soon!

Since WWII, the US has employed the tactics of regime change, using the CIA to foment revolutions, alongside waging localized wars (Korea & Vietnam to Iraq & Libya) to advance its global hegemony. Sometime after Nixon severed the link between gold & the US dollar in 1971, US military strategists began to recognize a direct correlation between overseas military action and capital flight to the USA as fearful investors seek safe haven - today this helps finance new debt without raising interest rates! At least one major power - China, acknowledges the new reality of America's Financial War Strategy. Of course, it's one thing to deploy a strategy of heightened military tensions for financial imperialism, but an entirely different matter when a misstep among major powers could bring a nuclear holocaust!

Five and a half decades ago, a youthful and idealistic JFK thwarted the plans of the military complex his predecessor Eisenhower had warned about, before paying with his life for his audacious behavior! Will the 10th president to follow (26 years his senior at inauguration), with a savvy borne of years in the cutthroat world of business adopt a more pragmatic approach, by kowtowing before the neocon powerbrokers who have faced no serious opposition post JFK and would welcome a President Pence?

I long ago concluded that notwithstanding the few who are awake & able to see past the shenanigans, the vast masses of humanity are simply too conditioned to believe the BS and will not awaken in time to forestall the inexorable march toward conflict between the major powers, or nuclear armageddon! If I am wrong in my assessment that the collective fear factor (reptilian brain) will again override our propensity for rational thinking then the planet may somehow be spared the brewing nuclear disaster!

History shows that to draw Americans into war, they must first believe that they have been attacked. Operation Gotham Shield, simulating a 10 kt nuclear detonation in NY/NJ (the last large-scale terror drill to take place in New York coincided with the 9/11 false flag attack) just ended without incident. With parliament prorogued until after the June 8 election, the window of opportunity for joint action with Britain is rapidly closing- remember, UK MP's voted against Syria intervention last time around!

Adding to the intrigue, a mystic who has been uncannily accurate (predicting Brexit, Trump election, even the recent missile strikes on Syria) has forecast a devastating false flag to take place by May 13, involving Syria & North Korea, leading up to a world war starting on May 13, ending 5 months later!

Even as the press sleeps, the world may be just days away from the biggest conflagration since WW2, one that only the fully coordinated efforts of Putin and Trump has any real chance of keeping at bay. If Trump has indeed been coopted by the Deep State then it may already be too late to avert disaster.

Nobel laureate John Boyd Orr put his finger on the problem when he diagnosed a condition afflicting many world leaders: "It is said that those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad. It may well be that a war neurosis stirred up by a propaganda of fear & hatred is the prelude to destruction"!

Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China

Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China
Paul Craig Roberts
Not everyone likes to hear about the threat of nuclear war. Some find refuge in denial and say that nuclear war is impossible because it makes no sense. Unfortunately, humankind has a long record of doing things that make no sense.
In previous posts in recent years I have pointed out both written documents and changes in US war doctrine that indicate that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia and China. More recently, I have shown that Washington’s demonization of Russia and President Putin, the incessant lies about Russian deeds and intentions, and the refusal of Washington to cooperate with Russia on any issue have convinced the Russian government that Washington is preparing the Western populations for an attack on Russia. It is obvious that China has come to the same conclusion.
It is extremely dangerous to all of mankind for Washington to convince two nuclear powers that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear strike against them. It is impossible to imagine a more reckless and irresponsible act. Yet this is precisely what Washington has done.
Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir, Deputy Head of Operations of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington in pursuit of global hegemony is implementing an anti-ballistic missile system that Washington believes can prevent a Russian nuclear response to a US pre-emptive attack.
Careful studies have convinced the Russians that Washington is investing in and arranging components that have no other function than to devastate Russia and cripple the country’s retaliatory capability. In short, Washington is preparing to launch a nuclear war.
As I explained previously, the theory behind this insane scheme is that after America’s preemptive strike Russia will be so devastated that Russia would not retaliate with any remaining forces out of fear that Washington would launch a second major strike. Washington also plans to use agents in place to assassinate as many members as possible of the Russian government, thus leaving the government in confusion without leadership.
Yes, the insane American/Israeli neoconservatives are this determined to exercise hegemony over the world.
Yes, Washington is sufficiently criminally insane to risk the destruction of life on earth based on the supposition that Washington’s offense will work perfectly and Russia and China’s capabilities will be so degraded that no retaliatory response will occur.
One might hope that the American and Western populations would be outraged that Washington is so power-crazed that Washington is subjecting all life to such risks. But there is no sign of an anti-war movement. The Western leftwing has degenerated into Identity Politics in which the only threat comes from white heterosexual males who are portrayed as misogynists, racists, and homophopes. The Western leftwing is no longer war-conscious. Indeed, the leftwing has become diverted into such silly irrelevancies as transgender rights to toilets of their choice. The impotence of the Western left is so overwhelming that the left might as well not exist.
Where then is the hope? Russia and China cannot simply sit there and await America’s preemptive nuclear strike.
Possibly Washington does not intend a preemptive strike, but only to convince Russia and China that Washington’s preparations give Washington so much predominance in a conflict that Russia and China will submit to Washington’s hegemony. But this interpretation of Washington’s intention implies no less risk. Why would Russia and China wait for Washington to complete its preparations for war, preparations that permit Washington to turn Russia and China into puppet states?
The US military/security complex has clearly prevailed over Trump’s intention to normalize relations between the US and Russia, and anti-Russian venom continues to pour out of NATO and Washington’s European vassal states. The majority of the American people seem to have accepted the propaganda that Russia is the number one threat to the United States. With propaganda controlling the explanation, Washington’s aggressive actions are explained as defense against a threat and not as a policy that will end life on earth.
The chances are high that life on earth is approaching its end. The responsibility lies heavily on the American people, whose success, due to the mistakes of others, made Americans think that they are exceptional and privileged. Unaware of the inhumane threat to all life that is embodied in the neoconservative claim that Americans are exceptional and indispensable, the self-satisfied American public is unaware of the consequences of such hubris. Hubris is leading them, and the entire world, to slaughter in thermo-nuclear war.
The neoconservative claim of American exceptionalism is the identical claim made for Germans by Hitler. If Americans are indispensable, everyone else is dispensable and can be “bombed into the stone age” as one US government official put it, or nuked as Washington intends to do to Russia and China. The claim of American exceptionalism is not accepted by Russia and China. Therefore, the insane, crazed monsters who rule over the West in Washington are bringing life on earth to an end.
And there are no protests. The idiot British, the idiot Germans, the idiot French, Italians, Canadians, Australians, Belgians, Greeks, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, rally behind the insanity that is Washington.
And so apparently do the American people, a population stupid beyond all belief.
